How comfortable are you with new technology?
- I like to be up-to-date and own the latest technology
- Technology is moving so fast that I don't even bother to try and keep up
- Someone needs to show me how to operate new technology before I am able to use it
Here is a writer who cannot conceive of someone who is comfortable with new technology yet does not feel compelled to buy the latest model of everything, money no object. Apparently the only imaginable reasons for not filling the house with shiny gizmos are a) laziness, or b) incompetence.
Whether this says anything very profound about consumer culture I'm not sure, but it certainly made me feel less charitable towards Epson.
